He . . . She . . Ze?!: Most Absurd Language Police Yet (Debbie Schlussel Alert)
Debbie Schlussel ^ | 02/15/2010 | Debbie Schlussel

Posted on 02/15/2010 2:17:45 PM PST by goldstategop

She’s right. Tomorrow, I’m gonna stop being unfair to bananas and call them soda. And apples, well . . . it’s not nice to exclude them from the meat group. Gonna call ‘em steak.

She also said that specific assignments often call exclusively for gender-neutral language.

Wow, someone’s parents are blowin’ a whole lot of money.

Keith Reisinger, graduate student instructor for the Women’s Studies Department, said the issue reaches far beyond any departmental policy or the confines of the University.

“I think we as a whole need to change how we talk about gender and people,” he said.

Me, too. About Mr. Reisinger, “ze” is an idiot.

Like I said, our enemies are teaching their kids how to kill us, and we’re too busy destroying masculinity, gender roles, and the English language with this absurd exercise in the trivial. And we wonder why they hate us.

Will they rename “Women’s Studies” to “Ze Studies” or just call it “Studies?”

Good point. "Women's Studies" is exclusivist and sexist to the indifferently gendered.

In the English language, male pronouns have always been understood to encompass both men and women. But just throw out the language because a handful of people see slights where there are none.

I read several feminist websites — “feministing.com” [which is slightly more mainstream] and “iblamethepatriarchy.com” [which is freaking ridiculous] particularly — and have run into this BS before. Its actually kind-of amusing to read at times — they get so angry over Super Bowl commercials and gender-specific pronouns, and are SO silent on other more pressing concerns for women.

Occasionally its kinda sad — you’ve got to feel sorry for people that are so angry for so long. Most members of these sites are EXTREMELY disturbed individuals ... makes you wonder what happened in their life to send them so far off of the deep end. From what I can tell, most of them have been raped, assaulted or abused by a prominent man in their life (father, husband, boyfriend, uncle) which has driven them to “radical feminism” (their term, not mine).

They blame all of society’s evils on the “patriarchy” which is the “system of male oppression” which is ubiqutous and ever-present (kinda like the Matrix, I think). It asserts itself through all men, and some women (pretty much any woman who is conservative, Christian, or at all conforming to gendered stereotypes ... so beware women who like heels, skirts, children, marriage, the color pink, or men). The patriarchy is all around us — in the wars we fight, the government we elect, the entertainment we pursue, and the relationships we have.

“Patriarchy”, best I can tell, is the conglomeration of anything and everything that any feminist anywhere decides she needs to bitch about.

Another confirmation that any university level cirriculum described as “[insert noun here] Studies” is more accurately, and dare I say, inclusively, described as “Grievance Studies”.

They don’t care about the words. They are radical wackos who really are convinced that there are no sexes (they say genders). They really think that there is only one kind of person and that “gender” is a fluid, flexible, changeable thing. They have convinced themselves that a person can easily move from one “gender” to another.

Obvious facts do not convince them.

“In the English language, male pronouns have always been understood to encompass both men and women.”

Looking at it another way: Women get their own pronouns. Men have to share.

They're called liberals and they're controlled by the vagina (and its accompanying package, known as their shrew).

This “fluid” business stops when you ask about male homosexuals, however. Somehow they’re supposed to be set in stone.

Yep. Liberals tell us gender is meaningless and on the hand, they inform us homosexuality is an inborn genetic condition. Yeah, right.

I think the proper term for men with vaginas is “Aldas”.

Did you need to use the word "insert"?

Everyone who watches Futurama knows the proper term is “shklee.”

Fry: Love the tentacle!

ALL: Love the tentacle!

Fry: Loved ones, the Monsterpus has revealed unto me its name.

Morbo: What is our love’s name?

Fry: Yivo. Yivo is the lover of all beings, male and female. But Yivo has no gender, thus Yivo has proclaimed that instead of “he” or “she,” we are to use the word “shklee.” And instead of “him” or “her,” we are to use the word “shklim,” or “shkler.”

Hermes: Phew! I’ve been sweating the nomenclature all week.

Pronounced like

“Heesheeits”, or if said too quickly, refers to a male performing an evacuation of waste.
